president obama signed the affordable care act into law have been turbulent, period marked by relentless and unanimous resistance from the opposition to establish law, consider this. president franklin roosevelt rolled out a series of programs he designed to combat the great depression, programs to build things, grow things, establish union rights and retirement programs for some federal workers. when fdr established the new deal, he, too, was met with fierce opposition. not just from members of the other party, but from the courts. during roosevelt's first term as president, the supreme court declared parts of his program unconstitutional. naturally that did not sit well with fdr so he sent congress a bill that would give the president the authority to appoint one new supreme court justice for every sitting justice over the age of 70. since there were six justices over 70 years old back then, that would mean six new justices. presumably all of them democrats. fdr lost the new deal rulings 6-3, but on a 15-member court with six new democrats, six new fdr appointees, he probably would hav
dollars in stimulus money, president obama's much-heralded -- well he heralded it, stimulus bill. infrastructure spending was supposed to be most of it. >> very good point. i don't have much to say about that. i mean these were supposed to be shovel-ready projects. >> and they weren't. >> well, they weren't. i mean some work did get done. it didn't do much to help unemployment and it didn't do much for our infrastructure. but we're talking about a trillion dollars. we're talking about huge amount of money that is needed. it's not just transportation, it's energy, it's water. so, there are huge investment opportunities. >> waste water, drinking water, energy transportation. but it's tricky here. because, you know, the chinese are going to have to navigate a whole bunch of regulatory rules, political obstacles, as well as. >> yeah. i mean, legal regulatory political mainly i mean people don't want the chinese, because they're -- so many of their companies are owned by the state. >> right. >> and they have a very big glass of transparency. you don't really know what's going on in th
executive order by president obama requiring local governments and federal agencies to account for climate change when they undertake big new projects. for more, we're joined from washington by margaret tolive. if we're just catching up here, what were those changes? what was the executive order saying? >> so the executive order is telling federal agencies and local governments and especially federal agencies to analyze all of the risks that climate change may have to their missions and what they do, to talk about what they are already doing and what they should be doing and sets up a task force to put all of these suggestions and recommendations together and analysis over the next nine months. >> does the forecast have any teeth or how does it work across the different agencies? >> what is interesting about this task force is it is laying down the policy inside the obama administration for the sort of stuff he can't do through congress and so the real question comes to funding. we need "x" amount of dollars to rebridge this bridge, shore up this shoreline, work on roads and infrastructure

convened this meeting because of the crisis that we recently experienced the standoff of president obama and congressional republicans. in a number of questions emerged from that crisis include, but not limited to the future of the republican party itself, the impact on america's image abroad, and what it implies for the duration of president obama's presidency. to answer questions or attempt to address them, we've assembled a distinguished panel here today including david keen, the former chairman of the american conservative union and the current opinion editor of the washington times. david is a veteran, political observer, and has participated in republican party politics for several decades. to the immediate right is the grover m. herman fellow in federal best of my knowledge tear -- budgetary affairs, row institute for economic studies, the heritage foundation, and she will address some of the economic implications of the process. to my left is president of the center of the national interest, the parent organization of the national interest magazine, and he'll talk about implicati

-- from massachusetts is weighing in on the battle from obamacare and he zeroed in on president obama's campaign promise. listen. >> he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. whether you like the model of obamacare or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermind the foundation of his second term. i think it is rotting it away. the only way he can rebuild credibility is to work with republicans and democrats and try and rebuild a foundation. >> that troubled health care .gov website is back up and running after an over night shutdown for repairs that had a rocky rollout. meantime congress still wants answers about the flawed website and about how many people have been able to successfully enroll in obamacare. a top presidential advisor says the numbers won't be that great for the first month. >> our goal is to get as many people done as possible. i can promise you the first enrollment numbers which was released later this month are not going to be what we want them to be. we take responsibility for that and take r
, as you say, we had the pakistani prime minister mr. sharif, in washington meeting president obama. one of the issues they discussed was drones. the pakistani government has very vocally opposed the drone campaign even though there are many indications that in private they have approved at least some of these strikes. there's also been a lot of attention recently from human rights groups about civilian casualties. the u.s. government claims that the drone campaign is extremely accurate, has killed very few people, but amnesty international brought out a report last week which suggested that in one instance a 67-year-old grandmother was killed. in another, 18 laborers were accidentally killed as they waited to take a meal at the end of the day. so it's a very contentious program but for the c.i.a. this is certainly -- or for the american government, rather, this is a way to show the campaign can also be extremely accurate and can take out people who are a danger not only to the united states but also to pakistan. >> woodruff: so in terms of knowing whether the government of pakistan woul
barack obama does not want me to go to washington. we don't have a lot in common and so there won't be a lot of bipartisan ship unless these guys come over to our way of thinking. >> the other partner bradley burn. his statements are far from liberal. >> we are sending far too much money to other countries who do not honor our principles. we are sending billions of dollars to countries like egypt and pakistan who are using that money to attack chri christians. but for the tea party he is not christian enough and in this old bastion of the south the tea party always goes on to win the election. >> wha what happenings here could determine if the federal government functions in the next year. >> professor sam fisher says if the tea party ca candidate wins other republicans will decide it's safer not to list ento the- listen to the republican leadership. it's one. things that the parties has been effective in doing, is threatening and saying look, if you don't t tow the line in your house we'll find someone to run against you. >> the candidate has money and the tea party challenger ha
. it would not do for the barack obama situation to cut off all ties with a country with whom it has had a longstanding political relationship. one of points that john kerry is making whilst in cairo is that the interim government, backed by the military, can't exist inperpetuaty, it needs to get on with establishing elections for a democratic-elected parliament and needs to take the steps sooner rather than later. >> let's talk about the visit to cairo. we didn't know about it until he landed, which makes you think iraq, afghanistan - dangerous places. what are the security concerns. it seems like the relationship between the two countries is clearly not what it was. >> certainly it is telling this the u.s. state department did not want to anoups or confirm -- announce or confirm that this is a possibility. it says that the u.s. is disapproving of how the interim egyptian government has functioned in the past five months, since july 3rd, when mohamed morsi was removed as president of egypt. when you don't make a hue and cry, it sends a message to the host country that it's not behaving

've been trying to accomplish both president bush and president obama have tried to figure out how to do this is to win the broader ideological struggle. basically, to stop people in the muslim world from wanting to join organizations like al-qaeda, to figure out what role we can play in bringing greater stability and moving towards a more moderate, effective, competent form of government in of these countries. now, the great challenge here, of course, is number one often conflicts with number two. we see that most notably in the drone campaign. undeniably, it has been effective. without question, the ability of al-qaeda's central leadership to property and plan -- to plot and plan attacks has been significantly degraded. one of the biggest things is we have effectively targeted and disrupted their leadership. when your top terrorists in the world are spending pretty much all their time every day worrying about how they can stay alive, they can't plot and plan as effectively. and that's worked. but the other thing that's very true is that military campaign has also made it more difficult
. most recently when president obama seemed to go to war with syria, the pope had a day of prayer to stop that and guess what, we're not at war with syria. according to the magazine, the n.s.a. has been categorizing the vatican's communication into four different categories. i want to take a look at them. there's leadership intentions, what they call leadership intentions, foreign policy objectives, human rights and then threats of the financial system. i find the last one to the financial system. what threats to the financial system does the vatican pose? >> that's a bit of a head scratcher because it doesn't have a particularly large amount of economic clout. occasionally they make comments about policy suggestion for how to help the world economy and how to help the world develop particularly in the developing world but it doesn't wield a lot of financial power. it isn't that big financially. it does have an institute. now, there's the institute for the works of religion which is kind of a bank that's set up to help coordinate charitable activities and currently the pope -- both pope f
with the bush administration and now the obama administration on the drone strike program. it's been the obama administration that has increased the frequency of the attacks. some argue out of a sense that the pakistanis have not done enough to crackdown on taliban and al qaeda activities in its border. there was a front page story in the "the washington post" outlining the detail not just how much access the pakistan government was tacitly giving to washington, but the pakistanis were getting top-level intelligence briefings about the targets and strategies used when launching the attacks. >> pakistani citizens don't like the attacks. it's not surprising you see an objection from the highest levels in the islamabad government because they have to basically find a way to placate their citizens. >> if it's killing a person who terror iffed so many pakistanis, why the call for accountability. >> you have to remember nawaz sharif who used to be the prime minister was re-elected as the prime minister. he's not been on the job for six months. it's essential for him staying in power to say to pakist
obama was on the campaign trial not for himself but a fellow democratic and terry is running for governor in virginia and he shared the stage saturday in arlington and he tried to link the opponent to the government shut down. >> we have seen an extreme faction of the republican party that is shown again and again and again that they are willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grant progress to an absolute halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. >> reporter: he is leading in the polls, there is a governor race in new jersey where they will decide to reelect chris christie. romney is slamming president obama over the affordable care act and on nbc he is unhappy with the similar law that romney signed when he was governor of massachusetts. >> in massachusetts we phased in the requirements so that there was a slow roll out, that way you could test the systems as you went along to make sure there wouldn't be glitches and the most important lesson the president failed to learn was you have to tell the american people the truth. and when he to

is accusing the obama administration of doing. one of violating pakistani sovereignty by launching a military attack on pakistani soil without islamabad's permission. the other thing that islamabad is accusing washington of doing is essentially scuttling - that's the pakistani's word, an effort to broker peace talks with the taliban. the pakistani's are arguing with the death of hakimullah mehsud, everything that they have been trying to achieve has been put back to square one. as a result the pakistani citizens will be at a higher risk of suffering from taliban attacks within the borders. >> hasn't the pakistani government been cooperating with the u.s. and the c.i.a. drone program all along. >> it's quite by assumed that the pakistani government has cooperated with the bush administration and the obama administration on the drone strike program. it's been the obama administration that has increased the frequency of the attacks - some would argue out of a sense that the pakistanis haven't been doing enough to crackdown on taliban and al qaeda activity within its borders. recently there was a

happening in egypt ever since. it was john kerry's mission to deliver a message from the obama administration about what washington expects cairo to do in the weeks and months ahead. >> ross lin, how can the u.s. reconcile working with this government while supporting move toward democracy? >> basically let's put it this way. the trip was unannounced. in diplomatic terms, that is denying egypt the ability to say, look. the united states is in support of what we have been doing here politically in the past five months. so, by having this unannounced trip, the u.s. was able to send a message that it does disprove of what has happened. that said, the u.s. also is making it very plain, and we heard this from secretary kerry on sunday, that the u.s. looks to egypt as a security partner across the middle east. it had a long-standing military relationship. he job description soldiers train here in the united states and attend high-ranking think tanks to get more professional education. the u.s. looks to egypt to help maintain security, particularly between the border with israel, with

at least 57 of the 82 people killed were civilians, including children. the obama administration said the u.s. follows international law and tries to choose the actions "least likely to result in the loss of innocent life." the reports came as pakistani prime minister nawaz sharif met with president obama at the white house and renewed his calls for an end to the drone strikes. the two also discussed recent attacks on christians within pakistan. >>> in egypt, coptic christians mourned the victims of a deadly drive-by shooting this week at a cairo church. masked gunmen killed four people, including two young girls. the u.s. and international human rights groups condemned that shooting as well as a recent string of other attacks against egypt's coptic christian minority, estimated at about 10% of the population. despite hopes for an immediate change, the vatican's chief official for doctrine this week reaffirmed the catholic church's traditional teaching banning communion for divorced catholics who remarry. in an article for the vatican newspaper, archbishop gerhard mueller said those catholi

done. the house oversight committee released an obama administration memo that shows four days before the launch the government took an unusual step. it granted itself a waiver to launch the web site with a level of uncertainty deemed as a high security risk. agency head marilyn tavener accepted the risk and mitigation measures like frequent testing and a dedicated security team. but three other officials signed a statement saying "that does not reduce the risk of launching october 1." georgetown law professor lawrence gostin is a big supporter of the affordable care act. he helped congress write the law to meet constitutional standards but he's critical of the launch without proper security. >> nothing can undermine public confidence more than the fear of a security and privacy breach. you could have somebody hack into the system, get your social security number, get your financial information. >> reporter: healthcare.gov exchanges data through a massive hub that includes the i.r.s. and social security administration to verify income and identity and veterans affairs for military per
